Tell us more about your project to get started

An international client came to us with an early-stage animated series looking to enter the US market.  We secured a development deal with a major global streamer.  

A small production company came to us with a completed feature script.  We worked with the client to package the project with talent, which triggered pre-sale interest from The Orchard. 

 

We secured and negotiated a worldwide theatrical pre-sale deal for the film.  We secured additional cast attachments and equity to compete financing to move the project into production.  

A production company came to us looking for help in attaching name cast to their feature film.  We secured name talent that allowed the filmmakers to confidently move into production.  As the film moved into pre-production we were asked to assume the role of lead producer on the project through our parent company, Media Sparks, overseeing all aspects of day-to-day production.  We sourced a domestic theatrical release for the film with Vertical Entertainment and continue to source and negotiate international sales on the film on a territory-by-territory basis across the globe.

How We Work With Clients

Strategy &

Market Intelligence

Strategy and Market Intelligence

We start with a thorough assessment of the project taking into account the current realities of the marketplace, ROI, potential buyers, etc .  We often float projects early on to trusted contacts at streamers, networks, talent agencies, sales agencies and buyers to get an exact read on how the project will work in the marketplace.  This vetting and direct feedback helps us to shape the project’s overall strategy, budget, finance and packaging and production plan.

Financial Models & Plan

Financial Models & Plan

We create a finance plan taking into account where the overall project sits in the marketplace.  We take into account the current market rates for completed projects and the elements needed to create a workable budget range.  Then we get to work on putting together the finance plan.  We look at all structured finance models including tax incentives, potential pre-sales, international co-production and co-finance opportunities (where appropriate) to connect the project to the right finance.

Market-ready Assets

Market-ready Assets

We create a comprehensive pitch deck and strategy for the project.  We also thoroughly evaluate and provide feedback for improving (if needed) any additional assets including treatments, teasers, etc.

Packaging Strategy & Outreach

Packaging Strategy & Outreach

We develop a realistic packaging strategy, appropriate for the budget level and type of project.

 

TALENT OUTREACH: We first work with you to create lists of meaningful talent attachments appropriate for the project.  We then lead outreach to reps and advise throughout the attachment and negotiation process.

 

WRITER/ DIRECTOR OUTREACH: If needed, we work with you to identify and lead outreach to relevant writers and directors.  We then advise throughout the attachment and negotiation process.

Partnership Strategy & Outreach

Partnership Strategy & Outreach

We provide strategic guidance on finance, distribution and production partners.  We lead outreach (as applicable) to potential sales agency, distribution, production partners, and co-production partners, both domestic and international.  Each project is unique, as are the partnerships needed to bring a project to life.

Production Guidance

Production Guidance

As the project moves closer to production we assist with sourcing service companies (as necessary), line producers, and key above the line crew to smoothly transition the project into the next phase.

Attaching killer talent

A new production company came to us looking for help in attaching name cast to their first feature film. 

 

We attached multiple Emmy winner Uzo Aduba to the lead role in "Miss Virginia."  This allowed the the producers to confidently move into production.  

 

 As the film moved into pre-production we were asked to assume the role of lead producer on the project through our parent company, Media Sparks, overseeing all aspects of day-to-day production.  

 

Upon completion of the film, we sourced a US theatrical release for "Miss Virginia" with Vertical Entertainment along with several releases in key territories across the globe.  We continue to source and negotiate international sales of the film.

"Miss Virginia" is currently streaming on
